Northern Uganda is one of the most impoverished places on earth, where people are suffering not only from poverty but also from war trauma. The BIG FIX Uganda uses the powerful healing power of dog companionship to help war trauma survivors as part of a program of psycho-social rehabilitation.
Dogs in need of good homes are rehabilitated by our team, temperament tested and spayed/neutered. They then are placed with war trauma survivors selected to be part of The Comfort Dog Project. The guardians make a lifetime commitment to their dogs, live with and care for their dogs, and participate in a weekly training program. Upon graduation, the dog-guardian teams become project ambassadors - visiting villages and schools to:
- educate others about the importance of being kind to animals
- teach others how to use positive reinforcement training techniques
- to serve as testimony of the healing power of human-dog bonds.
**The minimum donation for this class is £15 per person but there are options to pay more if you can**
